The Q&A Archives: Sunflowers with edible tubers

Question: What type of sunflower produces edible tubers and where can I get them?

Answer: You're thinking of Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus) -- it's not an artichoke nor from Jerusalem, but an American native sunflower that produces the tubers you're searching. For tubers, try Farmer Seed Nursery, 818 NW 4th Street, Faribault, MN (507-334-1623).
